But the kind of Conservative you're talking about, the fiscally responsible anti-war Constitutionalist, this person is in a very small minority on the Right. They're the exception, while the rule is Fascism.I'll put it this way: I know intelligent and moral conservatives, and I also despite the way the bulk of the right here on DP acts like they are only (sometimes) responsible for their actions but everyone on the left is responsible for each others' actions. So I don't want to emulate it.
Actual conservatism does seem to have done a nose-dive in the GOP over the last 20-30 years, so they do seem rather outnumbered today.
And it's always been that way. Conservatives opposed every civil rights movement in American history, they even opposed freeing the slaves. This isn't something that just happened with Trump or Reagan.
